For major projects, on-site facilities can provide a faster, more cost-effective solution for materials testing.

CET provide a bespoke, on-site testing service to major infrastructure, construction and engineering projects across the UK using our Mobile UKAS Laboratories.

Our mobile laboratory service is a turn-key solution that is developed to meet the specific requirements of your project. Our consultants work closely with our customers to define the scope and scale of the laboratory before designing and deploying the testing facility on site.

With CET’s UKAS Flexible Scope Accreditation*, a mobile laboratory can provide immediate access to test facilities, analysis and reporting; with additional support available from our occupational health, safety and quality teams. The speed and accuracy of on-site laboratories can generate significant savings in both time and money over the lifecycle of a project.

Offering everything from basic soil classification to running surface testing our on-site UKAS laboratories are staffed by fully-qualified engineers & technicians and ensure a responsive, high quality service tailored to your specific project requirements with technical reporting and on-site support and materials advice.

Our UKAS mobile laboratories are supported by the CET Structures Ltd Occupational Health, Safety & Quality Department who can assist with the laboratory design, installation and management of the units.

*Our accreditation is limited to those activities described on our UKAS schedule of accreditation, a copy of which can be found here.


Since achieving flexible scope accreditation, CET has provided UKAS accredited mobile laboratories to a number of high profile UK infrastructure projects, including:


Provision of two fully-equipped UKAS accredited laboratories testing concrete used in the production of the running tunnels. Labs were installed and working to UKAS standard within 6 weeks.


Provision of a mobile laboratory to test a range of earthworks related tests on the DIRFT 2 project. Dedicated on-site labs were operated and maintained for a period of 9 months.


Provision of a fully-functional UKAS laboratory on site, carrying out a range of tests normally associated with a major road by-pass scheme.



“CET has provided a very professional, reliable and flexible testing service that has enabled us to progress confidently with our works. Their approach has allowed us to adapt quickly to programme changes and prevailing site conditions.”
